The basics:

Turmeric is a spice that has been used for centuries in traditional medicine. It is native to Southeast Asia, but it is now grown in many parts of the world. Turmeric is a member of the ginger family, and it has a bright yellow color. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, which has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

There is a growing body of scientific evidence to support the health benefits of turmeric. Curcumin has been shown to help with a variety of conditions, including:

💊 Arthritis: Curcumin can help to reduce inflammation and pain in people with arthritis.

💊 Depression: Curcumin has been shown to be as effective as some antidepressants in treating depression.

💊 Cancer: Curcumin has been shown to kill cancer cells and prevent cancer from spreading.

Dosing Information:

The World Health Organisation advises up to 3mg per kg of bodyweight of curcuminoids, which includes curcumin.

The average daily intake in an Indian diet is much higher, between 60 and 100mg per kg of bodyweight.

For the best effect, you should have turmeric in combination with black pepper. A 2017 study by USA’s Central Michigan University reported that an important compound in black pepper, piperine, can promote the body’s ability to absorb curcumin by 2000%.
